I find it baffling how Yellowtards are now making a big deal about how Indonesian President Joko Widodo (a.k.a. “Jokowi”) stood and talked tough before China reasserting Indonesia’s claim to its exclusive economic zone in the Natuna Sea following a naval standoff there.
Inggit much. How to be you po? https://t.co/mn4fRXUdJ6

They seem to forget that it was former President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III who originally flinched in a similar naval standoff over an economic zone. This literal Yellow moment on the part of BS Aquino is documented in Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao’s piece “Have we forgotten that the Aquino-del Rosario tandem lost Scarborough twice over?”
Have we forgotten that President Benigno Aquino 3rd and his Foreign secretary Albert del Rosario lost Scarborough Shoal to the Chinese in 2012 and then in 2016?
This is where…
Aquino foolishly sent the refurbished cutter from the US Coast Guard, renamed the BRP Gregorio del Pilar and officially a Philippine Navy warship, to help arrest Chinese fishermen in Scarborough Shoal.
…only to withdraw later following confused talks involving then Foreign Secretary Ramon del Rosario, then Senator Antonio Trillanes, and Chinese and American diplomats. Tiglao then highlights the devastating outcome of the collective idiocy of Aquino and his lapdogs…
When the Philippine ships withdraw from Scarborough, our government effectively gave up our sovereignty over it, on the principle that occupation is nine-tenths of possession.[…]
Face reality. We lost Scarborough because of Aquino and del Rosario’s bungling. That is one of the biggest damage that Yellow Regime has done to our country.
So, yeah, before Yellowtards like Elizabeth Angsioco feel much inggit over the balls exhibited by Jokowi and the Indonesian military, they should first review their history books and behold the lack of testicles exhibited by their political deities. Oh yeah, if forget. There are no history books in the Philippines pointing out such facts about Yellowtardom.
